Besides, the lack of a real window to the outside (little or no natural light) and smell of sewer in the bathroom, it was great. I should have researched more before booking, I suppose.

Mariano, who speaks okay English, was at the house to greet me and give me the keys. He also pointed out which supermarkets were nearby and would not rip me off. He and Magui were always available via email/text probably because it's easier to translate (language barrier). The photos are very accurate. The flat does look just like that except that it's very dark once the sun goes down. It's dependent on natural light that comes from the lightwell windows. The lamps and such inside are not very strong so it can get pretty dim which would be perfect for a romantic evening, not so much for a night-in with a book. The neighborhood is one of the best parts about this place - it's quiet and removed from the noisy center but still an easy 10min walk to Plaça Catalunya, Plaça Espanya/Montjuic, the MACBA, and Passeig de Gracia. Location is perfect for getting around the city with ease and there are 2 metro stations one block away in either direction. It's walking distance to the Sant Antoni market, the bar streets of Poblesec, and great restaurants on Parallel. It's also quite safe since it's not too far away from streets that are always populated. Plenty of pharmacies, supermarkets, and convenience stores nearby. There's one bazar right next to the entrance that has all the random things (including suitcases and fresh flowers) you may need. There's Veritas, a pricy organic store two streets down for any vegan/gluten-free needs you might have. I didn't need a cab to get around unless coming back late at night. Public transport is very reliable in case you want to skip the walk but I wouldn't - Barcelona is a fun city to explore on foot. Cleaning lady comes by every Friday so you're stocked with new sheets and a clean house. Only bad experience was a case of bed bugs that wasn't confirmed until halfway through my 3-month stay. Magui and Mariano were very quick to rectify the situation - getting an exterminator and a new mattress. Had I been staying for just a few days, I would've considered moving just to avoid the situation but I was in it for the long-haul and packing up to find another housing arrangement would've been a hassle. I left a few cans of Good Night bed bug spray that my mom brought when she visited. These things happen all the time especially with shared residences that have travellers coming through often but it wasn't something I enjoyed obviously. Despite that hiccup, the apartment was a good temporary home.

Great Location and great apartment for a couple. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures. Mariano, who took care of us during the two months that we were there , is super friendly, gave us some tips about Barcelona and was always around to help. We had a great time and we will definitely came back.

The description and photos of this apartment are an accurate representation of what I found. It is clean, modern, beautifully decorated and LARGE. There are beautiful wood floors throughout, comfortable furnishings, a high ceiling, and tasteful lighting.. Cable TV and wireless internet worked great. And it is quiet -- a wonderful place to return to after a busy day enjoying the city, a great place to relax, and a restful environment for having an afternoon nap, too. The apartment is situated in the rear (back) of the first floor and, as such, has no view. The large windows provide natural light and fresh air. The apartment is ideally situated, within walking distance of the Plaza Catalunya, the Ramblas and Passeig de Gracia. I found the subway easy to use and conveniently located -- two stations are within a couple of blocks. And the Aerobus from/to BCN let me off and picked me up two blocks from the front door! Magui was very responsive to my initial inquiry and made booking the apartment easy. It was easy to contact Mariano, who handled my check-in and departure. He was waiting for me at the apartment when I arrived and met me at the arranged time when I was ready to leave. He was available by text message during my entire visit. I would recommend this flat to any of my friends who are thinking of visiting Barcelona.

This place is great. Felt like home. One thing you don't get from the pictures is the size - despite being a studio, it's actually enormous. It's got a really homely vibe, it's not super modern or super new but not nearly old at the same time. Kitchen well equipped. Much room for friends to stay if you want. The only thing is - it's not super well lit. You do get some decent light through the window during the day, but the apartment is just so big that it's not enough. Even at night, the lighting with all the down lights on is not great because of how big the space is. This has been offset by multiple lamps throughout the place and that suited me just fine - but it's never going to be super bright. Mariano was super responsive when needed. Overall would highly recommend.

Mariano was friendly and helpful. The apartment is spacious and the location is great. It's not very quiet, though. Although there's no noise from the street, the neighbors are noisy. Other than that I had a good time. (Stayed for 2 months.)
